Apache Blessing

A quick note today...

 Now you will feel no rain,
for each of you will be shelter for the other.
Now you will feel no cold,
for each of you will be warmth to the other
Now there will be no loneliness,
for each of you will be companion to the other.
Now you are two persons, but there is only one life before you.
May beauty surround you both
in the journey ahead  and through all the years,
May happiness be your companion
and your days together be good and long upon the earth.
~Apache Blessing

Just wanted to share this custom order I will be sending out today. This Apache Blessing is so pretty. For a very small wedding, the guests will sign their names all around the tree and the bride and groom will frame for a keepsake of the day. We used this woodland image on her invitations as well....

One of my favorite projects this month, possibly because it has such a rustic, harvest feel that just embraces the season, and I am so ready to "give thanks" this year...

Pin O' the Day

Have you discovered Pinterest yet?

If not, go check it out and thank me later. So much eye- popping inspiration, so addictive!

The quote from John Lennon above is one of my current favorites (and I found it through my niece- thank you Hannah!). I identify with John's Mother because in all of the mind numbing, overwhelming-ness (I know, not a word, but it conveys exactly how I feel about this, and I'm not even the one doing most of the work)  of the college application process, I remember a moment when I told my daughter this exact thing: find something that make you happy

Not rich. Not famous. 
Just happy. 

When you find it, you will know it, and try not to stress about the fact that at age 18, you're not sure what you want to do (I think we put too much pressure on our kids to figure it all out before they even apply to colleges). 

Explore. Learn. And enjoy the process.
